SUNDERLAND, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a woman accused of hitting a state trooper’s cruiser in Sunderland and fleeing the scene has turned herself in to police.

Police say 46-year-old Valerie Radford of Dorset was charged Wednesday with gross negligent operation and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities say she was on her way to catch a flight at the Albany, New York, airport when the crash occurred Monday morning.

The trooper was on a Route 7 interchange ramp when an oncoming vehicle lost control and crossed the centerline. The cruiser was struck on the driver’s side rear door and fender. The trooper wasn’t hurt.

Radford returned from Charlotte, North Carolina, and turned herself in to State Police in Shaftsbury Wednesday. Her lawyer says she is cooperating with the investigation.
